Do you ever wish the items you are throwing out could be reused by someone else? What you need is a local online community that makes posts under the assumption that everything is free. Enter freecycle.org. Freecycle is a site that lets you post or request items for free at no cost. It's great for finding packing supplies for any items you are able to sell on other sites. Best of all: it's free! That can't be beat.
Items that are perfectly fine, but you need to get rid of due to moving/ cleaning/any other reason for it to go into a trash bag and get out of your life can be donated, or posted onto freecycle.org.
